Before you comment, think about fuzzy puppies: warm puppy eyes looking up at you, floppy puppy ears listening to you, oversized puppy paws tapping you on the leg. Then go put on sweatpants and have a snack. Stretch. Now you are ready to write something.Black and tan German shepherd puppy sitting on green grass.

I will keep comments by people who seem to have followed this advice.

People with feelings will read what you have to say. There is a good chance those people really love dogs.
